Athens family - friendly private tour <includes transportation>

Visiting Athens with kids? What a great opportunity to discover our city from a different perspective!
We pick a museum (the New Acropolis or the National Archaeological) and we make all those ancient gods and heroes come alive so to take us on a journey through time and space. A 100m race right where the first modern Olympics took place in 1896 will get one-or maybe all of you-at the first place of the podium before we explore the out-of sight tunnels of the stadium.
The top of the highest hill is ideal for panoramic views of the city and family pics; the National Garden with hundreds of indigenous plants and trees, ponds, domestic animals and wild mountain goats consists an oasis during the hottest summer days and it's right next to the Palace & Syntagma Sq. where the Presidential Guards in their unique style uniform will definitely catch your attention.
Great meal suggestions for closing; burger or pasta (of course) among other options and before dessert: what about some"kaimaki" ice-cream?


Magic Athens recipe for young visitors:

*1 museum (The New Acropolis museum more preferably but the National Archaeological is also amazing-especially for older kids)
*1 ancient temple (the Acropolis monuments OR the temple of Zeus, the choice is yours)
*1 stadium (Old Olympic Stadium)
* 7-8 neoclassical style buildings (Zappeion, Academy, University and more during the city tour
* 2 6, 5feet-tall Presidential Guards
* lots of greens (National Garden)
* 3/4 of the highest Athens hill (Lycabettus)

Ice-cream, frozen yogurt, loukoumades etc: as much as mum allows (or not).

A Recent Review of this tour

Maria was amazing. Couldn't have asked for anyone more pleasant or knowledgeable. Everyone enjoyed the day emensely, children and adults alike. Her english vernacular was great and her guidance and suggestions regarding further sites to visit, places we might enjoy for dinner and a general location information to help us get ourselves around for rest of our time here. Highly recommend.
